Our guest today is Kayla Wexelberg. Kayla is a chef, an educator and a yogini. She the founder of Taste Your Roots. Taste Your Roots’ goal is grounding and educating people in their food culture, the land, and supporting them on the journey to developing a self motivated sustainable food system. Her website states: With the diverse foods that exists today, we help folks find food practices that, not only give them healthy nourishing sustenance but a deeper sense of being in connection with their food and their land. Taste Your Roots achieves this through hands on cooking classes, private chef work, conscious caterings’ and individual health consultations. In addition, Taste Your Roots is constantly researching and documenting food practices and traditions all over the world. The information gathered is intertwined in classes and used to help us understand the importance of food traditions and the information they have to offer us in understanding a history, a culture and a geographic landscape. Most importantly this research is aimed at answering the questions of how to live a sustainable and connected life.
A fellow yogini, Kayla also completed her yoga teacher training in Rishikesh India this year.
I met Kayla at the New Earth Festival in Bali where she was preparing food to nourish the participants. I was super impressed with what she was serving up, and saw very quickly that she was a kindred spirit. She managed to pull herself away from the busy kitchen to have this chat with me.
We talk about food, seed to table, food and the chakra system, and yoga.
I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I enjoyed having it.
Kayla you kick ass!
